Project to Increase Lifespan of Organic Solar Cells (OSC) together with Konarka Technologies

BMBF Stability Project Focuses on Yielding Competitive Organic Photovoltaics (OPV) with Potential for Commercial Use

Konarka Technologies, Inc., an innovator in development and commercialization of Power Plastic®, a material that converts light to energy, today announced Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is supporting a future oriented development project through a consortium that is headed by Konarka, and is providing funding of nearly EUR 2.5 million over the next three years. The project, called “OPV stability” targets to significantly increase the lifespan of organic solar cells (OSC) with the goal of yielding competitive organic photovoltaics (OPV) for potential commercial use.

Established to develop stable organic solar modules, the consortium consists of renowned academic partners including University Tübingen, University Wuppertal, Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz.
